Who we are

Rev Sheridan James

Rev Sheridan James


Hi! I’m Sheridan and I've been the Vicar of St Catherine's church since May 2011. I love the sense of community here. This is a good place to worship God and nurture your spiritual life and be passionate and thoughtful about what it means to follow Jesus in the 21st century.
I love the fact that we are an outward-facing church. We’re really engaged with local events and projects, mainly in partnership with the Telegraph Hill Centre. Outside of work I love my dog, a good TV drama, music and dinner with friends. I started running in 2016, which I really love - but I am never going to run a marathon. I can speak English, Welsh and French fluently.
